tart pan


Used to bake everything from tarts to quiches, the tart pan has fluted, straight sides (as opposed to the sloped sides of a pie pan). It can range in diameter from 8 to 12 inches (individual-size pans are 4 inches), and is typically 1½ inches deep. Metal tart pans have removable bottoms, glass and porcelain have solid bottoms.
